ONE Championship will make its return to the United States in 2024 for two events later in the year.
“America remains a high-priority market for us as we continue our global expansion, and we can’t wait to get back on-ground to entertain our passionate fan base in the region with quarterly events in September 2024 and beyond,” ONE Chairman and CEO Chatri Sityodtong said.
ONE first touched down in the U.S. last May, with ONE Fight Night 10 delivering an outstanding evening of martial arts action that thrilled the audience in Dever, Colorado. The sold-out 1stBank Center was rocking all night long, and global superstars got their first taste of the American audience.
The Mile High City will get to experience that excitement again. The city will be first up for the organization’s return on September 6.
The September event of ONE Championship return to U.S. will take place at the Ball Arena in downtown Denver. The arena plays host to both the Denver Nuggets and the Colorado Avalanche and will soon house the nonstop action of ONE.
The company will head to Atlanta two months later for its November U.S. primetime event. The event will mark the company’s expansion across the U.S. and give the South a taste of its unique brand of martial arts that features kickboxing, Muay Thai, and submission grappling alongside MMA.
ONE will take the event to the home of the Atlanta Hawks, State Farm Arena, on November 8.
Both states have adopted ONE’s global rule set that differs from the unified rules used in other promotions.
